How do I calculate space needed for my guest?

Depending on the event figure 12-18 sq. ft. per person, you may also need to add square footage for dance floor, buffet tables, staging ect.

100 guest x 12 sq. ft. = 1200 sq. ft.    30x40 canopy

 

How many people can fit at a table?

Refer to our brochure under tables, a formal place setting means less room for seating.

8 to 10 people at a 60”rd table means 8 are comfortable with a formal setting and 10 are comfortable with an informal setting.

 

How many glasses do I need at a cocktail party?

Rule of thumb is 1.5 per person for the first hour and 1 per person for each addition hour.   250 glasses are needed for a two hour party.

100 guest x 1.5 first hour = 150 glasses

100 guest x 1 second hour = 100 glasses

 

How do I know what linen will fit my table?

The linens we rent are made to fit the rental tables but we usually have a size that will somewhat fit your own table.  Add 30” to the length and width of your table this will give you linen that will hang lap length.  Add 58” to the length and width and this will give you linen that will hang to the floor (most tables are 29” high).

 

Do I need to return rental items clean?

Dishware, glassware, flatware ect. need to be rinsed and returned in their original crates.

Shake out any food or confetti from the linens before returning.

 

How are the rental items packed?

Equipment is clean, wrapped and in crates.  Linens are clean and bagged on a hanger.

Can I get a refund on un-used rental equipment?

Unfortunately not, we charge for time out not time used.

 

What size dance floor do I need?

On an average 2/3 of your guest will be dancing and you will need to figure 3 sq. ft. per person.

2/3 of 200= 133 people x 3= 400 sq. ft. (approximate)

A dance floor 20x21 will accommodate 133 people dancing.
